    New PF-9

    OK. I admit it. I went over to the dark side and bought myself a PF-9 at for $260 plus tax. I was really thinking about a P3-AT or the new Ruger LCP, but decided that I didn't want to buy another set of dies. Took her out this afternoon and ran just over fifty rounds through her without any problems until one of my reloads got stuck part way into the chamber. Not the pistols fault.

    After getting home and removing the offending cartridge from the chamber I discovered that the case was just enough out of spec not to chamber in the Kel-Tec. Funny thing is, the cartridge chambered just fine in my other nines - the Kel-Tec's chamber is tight. After taking a random sampling of the over 1500 rounds of reloaded 9mm in my workshop and dropping them into the barrel, I found that this was an isolated case. Based on the serial number this particular pistol was manufactured after 01/2008 so it has all the modifications previous models were lacking.

    Overall impressions - Nice light, reliable pistol (so far anyway) that is comfortable to carry in my front pocket. However, I think I'm going to carry IWB with a Galco Stow-n-go holster - assuming it will fit - and will make this my daily carry.

    Hope you like it. I've got 1000+ rds through one and another 500 through newest one.One of em carried daily. Lessons learned: polish ramp and chamber, try a Houge slip on grip, and maintain a firm grip. Good luck!

    Thumbs up

    I been thinking about one myself as I don't have anything in the 9mm line. It should be a good carry as it's not much bigger than my .3AT. Good report.

    Thanks for the report. Is anyone aware of a picture of this pistol next to a P3AT?
